IE University will be launching a Bachelor of Laws Degree (LLB) for the 2011-2012 academic year following the official accreditation of the program by Spain’s University Commission. The four-year degree program will be run under the aegis of IE Law School, and will have a markedly global slant in line with similar programs at other prestigious international universities, such as Northwestern University (Chicago), Beijing University School of Transnational Law, or King’s College of London. 

Students will benefit from the numerous agreements which IE Law School, one of the most recognized institutions of its kind, enjoys with other leading international law schools around the world. Graduates will be equipped to exercise the legal profession in Spain, UK, and the US, and the program curriculum will combine corporate law with the study of business administration and humanities. The IE Bachelor of Laws will also place a special emphasis on professional skills, with a clear focus on international lawyering. 

The new degree program will be available in Spanish and English. It will be taught at IE’s Segovia campus, and students will also be able to enjoy the advantages of agreements between IE  Law School, headed by Dean José María de Areilza, and leading law firms in Spain and worldwide. 

The Rector of IE University, Juan Luis Martínez, stated that “this new Law Degree further enhances IE University’s broad portfolio of degree programs, and is aligned with all IE programs in that it is geared to meet market needs and ensure the employability of its graduates”.  

During the four-year program students will have access to IE Law School’s “Law Unplugged” seminar, which will permit them to simulate the practical application of Law in parallel to their legal training. Moreover students will have the opportunity to take part in an exchange program with other leading international law schools. 

 “IE Law School has been teaching law from an international perspective for some thirty five years,” says Soledad Atienza, Director of IE University’s Bachelor in Laws.  “Our programs are based on a highly active approach and are designed to meet the needs of business. The key differentiating factors of our law degree lies in its flexibility due to online options and its large range of electives, and its clear focus on international practice.”

IE University impartirá su Grado en Derecho a partir del curso 2011/2012, tras recibir la aprobación del Consejo de Universidades. IE Law School, la escuela de Derecho de IE, ofrecerá el título universitario que forme a futuros abogados. Este grado (Bachelor of Laws degree), de cuatro años de duración, exhibe un enfoque global en línea con otras universidades internacionales de prestigio como Northwestern University (Chicago), Beijing University School of Transnational Law (Pekín) o King’s College of London (Londres). 

Los estudiantes se beneficiarán de los convenios que IE Law School, una de las escuelas de Derecho más reconocidas en el mundo, tiene firmados con destacadas escuelas de Derecho internacionales. Los graduados estarán capacitados para ejercer la profesión de la abogacía en España, Reino Unido y Estados Unidos. El currículum combinará derecho de los negocios con administración de empresas y humanidades. Asimismo, se dará una gran importancia a las habilidades  profesionales, con un claro enfoque hacia la práctica internacional de la abogacía. 

La nueva titulación se impartirá en español y en inglés en el Campus de Segovia, y disfrutará de los acuerdos suscritos con importantes despachos por IE Law School, escuela que lidera su decano José María de Areilza. 

El Rector de IE University, Juan Luis Martínez puso de manifiesto que “este grado en Derecho refuerza y amplia la cartera de titulaciones que ofrece IE University, manteniendo siempre los valores de orientación al mercado y la empleabilidad de los graduados”.  

Durante los cuatro años, un seminario denominado “Law unplugged” permitirá a los estudiantes simular el ejercicio práctico del Derecho de forma paralela al aprendizaje. Asimismo, los alumnos se beneficiarán de los programas de intercambio con las primeras escuelas de Derecho a nivel internacional. 

“En IE Law School llevamos treinta y cinco años enseñando Derecho con una perspectiva internacional, con orientación empresarial y a través de una metodología de enseñanza activa; así lo seguiremos haciendo en el nuevo grado en Derecho”, afirma Soledad Atienza, directora del grado, que añade que esta titulación “se diferencia por su flexibilidad -gran número de electivos y formación on line-  y por ofrecer un aprendizaje orientado claramente al ejercicio profesional de la abogacía en un entorno global”.
